Title: Untying The Afghan Knot
Author: Riaz M. Khan
Number of Pages: 402
The writer Riaz Khan has comprehensively explained his experiences and observations of the diplomatic efforts by Pakistan to negotiate the withdrawal of the USSR from Afghanistan. I haven’t found any other book on this subject that provided such great detail. A good book that provides primary information to the readers and scholars.
